tv   The Fox News Specialists  FOX News  June 20, 2017 2:00pm-3:01pm PDT

2:00 pm
>> eric: i am eric bolling with eboni k. williams and kat timpf. we are the fox news specialists. outrage over the death of otto warmbier is intensifying the 22-year-old american students death days after his release from north korea with severe brain damage. now being called murder by top u.s. lawmakers. this afternoon, the white house responded to questions about whether the u.s. would retaliate against the rogue state. >> we have been forceful in our political and economic pressure that's been applied in north korea. we will continue to apply that. >> eric: president trump
2:01 pm
tweeted short time ago saying: "while i greatly appreciate the efforts of president xi & china to help with north korea, it has not worked out. at least i know china tried!" spicer's response. >> kat: not forceful enough. it is murder. it is clearly murder and should be more forceful. but what are you going to do? >> eboni: way to measured. you have to call anything a thing whether it's islamic terror or the murder of this innocent young man. >> eric: let's meet today's specialists. he is the new york state reform party chairman and cohost of a radio show. he specializes in rocking a red beret better than anyone we know. curtis sliwa.
2:02 pm
director of a u.k. foreign policy think tank. new book out today. he specializes in being an englishman in new york. douglas murray is here. i have a few more things to say. time to wake up, america. the death of otto warmbier broke before he went to air yesterday. it hit me like a ton of bricks. maybe because i have a son about the same age when poor otto wandered into north korea on a travel junket, something my son might do. maybe i have a long memory. i remember the obviously staged a press conference where he admitted to taking a poster from a hotel for which he was sentenced to 15 years of hard labor. a poster from a hotel bird look at the video. otto breaking down and the fear of the fate he waited. does not take a uva degree to say this was a coerced confession. that young man was scared to
2:03 pm
death, possibly probably literally. i remember the shameless way the liberal left media treated otto. "this might be america's biggest idiot frat boy." that has been deleted but it got worse. "huffington post" made the incident about race and blamed otto. "north korea proves your white male privilege is not universal." according to "the huffington post," otto warmbier was abducted by north korean war criminals because he was white and the whole thing is his fault. "huffington post," you owe the warmbiers an apology. can we please stop? apparently we can't. check out this tweet via website that claims to represent millennials. "watch whiteness work. he wasn't a kid or innocent. you can't go to another country and try to steal from them. respect their laws."
2:04 pm
that was affinity magazine. they tweeted this after the news broke of otto's demise, blaming poor otto. reasonable people on both sides of the political spectrum should see it as horrendous. nobody deserves the fate of otto warmbier, nobody. those who think it's cute, funny, or an opportunity to highlight social justice issues, maybe you should spend a few months in a north korean prison. let us know how american life and liberty look to you then. after a severe backlash, affinity took down the asinine tweet. what is going on with the left that they will insert white privilege into all their debates and dialogues? >> curtis: i am looking at this and saying mr. president, how about putting on a travel ban to any american who is crazy enough to go behind the kimchi curtain of north korea and deal with kim jong-un.
2:05 pm
when otto decided to go, you're taking a risk. these are countries with totalitarian dictators. why wouldn't they kill a tourist or visitor. i hope eric, you are not suggesting this is like weapons of mass destruction. 23 i got lit up a little bit yesterday by suggesting there could be a primitive, let's note but a limit to north korea's capability of delivering a missile. >> douglas: north korea is the worst country in the world. i've been a places. i have been to north korea. it is literally a on earth. it's totally isolated. no sense of what the outside
2:06 pm
world believes her nose. people have been brainwashed. you will need millions of psychiatrists to deal with the people in that country. the red light for this country is you cannot allow it to get deliverable missiles. >> eric: when do we know? there literally could be an icbm on a launch site and we don't know what they have in the tip of the warhead. >> kat: the problem is there really is no good way to deal with north korea. of course we don't want them to allow to get to that point but if we do something, they're going to retaliate. we can't wipe out everything. the way the terrain is, there's ways to hide things. like you said, those people there, there would be -- it would be like what happened in libya in terms of a vacuum of power. even if we did take them out, people being able to come in and have the same terrorist type organizations. it's a huge mess.
2:07 pm
>> eric: do you want to address your radio cohost, saying that a.b. the only way to do this is to do a travel ban. >> curtis: before i step on you, eboni k. williams, it is red china we need to go after. >> eric: you blamed american travelers. >> curtis: north korea can't survive a day without the red chinese yen. it is the president playing footsie with who's on first, i don't know who's on third. death and mar-a-lago having chocolate cake. it's the chinese we need to put pressure on. >> eboni: listen, i want to address something in your monologue. internet rags shows the lack of empathy in our country, world. it is the same lack of empathy seen in the wake of the tragic
2:08 pm
death of philando castile. people are so attached to their political ideologies in their respective corners and they get so caught up in their feelings around it that when innocent people die there is no room in their heart and emotional capacity for empathy. i think that's very important. i wouldn't advise anyone to go to north korea obviously for this young man is dead and it's unnecessary. >> eric: there are at least three more americans being held under the same circumstances. a canadian as well. curtis before we wait and see who doesn't show up north korea, what are the answers? how do we get these people back? how do you get the other three americans back? >> douglas: it's extremely hard. even more unpredictable than it was with kim jong-un than his father or grandfather. regime changes kind of off the table. the only thing you can do, the chinese regard the north koreans as being like a very
2:09 pm
embarrassing young relative. they know they own it and are responsible for it and they hated anything needed. only with the chinese eat can you do anything. >> eric: how to get the chinese to understand that any sort of conflict on the korean peninsula would be a floodgate of refugees into mainland china? >> douglas: the chinese know it. they don't want south korean style capitalism on the border either. the only way you can do it is to persuade the chinese that the price for them not bringing pyongyang into line is worse than the price of bringing them into line. you're dealing with literally the most insane leadership on the planet. >> eboni: how to be demonstrated? it's been my question i ask 15 different ways every time this comes up. how do we incentivize china to get on board? >> curtis: we already do it. we attack iran on a regular basis but we give the red chinese a pass. they export fentanyl into our
2:10 pm
country. it's the number one reason people are dying of opioids in the country. it's because of china. we give them a pass on everything. this president has to knock off his business deal mentality with red china. >> eric: are you suggesting military action against china? >> curtis: the same way we are putting pressure on north koreans with aircraft carriers and battleships and cruisers, start aiming it toward the red chinese coast. start putting -- >> eric: you would rather aim our cannons and firepower at 1.3 or 1.4 billion people then maybe 40 million or 50 million people? >> curtis: who pulls the strings? the red chinese. we are distracted by the fat guy in the that haircut, the nut job who wants -- loves doing this. >> eboni: i disagree. it's our financial interests are in direct conflict.
2:11 pm
>> curtis: it is all about the money. >> kat: there are consequences to threatening and aiming cannons of people all around the world. >> curtis: but we do it in syria. north korea. >> eric: let's bring douglas n. 1981, israel was threatened by the iranians and the nuclear program and they went in and said we want your health, united states. we weren't offering it and they did on their own. they blasted their nuclear capabilities 20 years into the future. >> douglas: the most successful preemptive strike in military history. the thing with north korea, you've got to decide what it is you want. if you want to get the people home, that's one decision. if you want to stop them being a nuclear power, that's another decision. regime change is another. to my mind, you have to decide which is most important. >> eric: do the north koreans have the right, let's call it the right to develop their
2:12 pm
nuclear program? knowing what we know about their leader? >> kat: obviously not. i don't think anyone say that's a good idea. >> eric: i didn't say good idea or bad idea. do they have the right to do it? >> kat: no, it's a murderous regime. >> eric: isn't it our time to have a coalition go in? >> kat: and do what? >> eric: have been trying to deal with the north korean regime heard five presidents haven't been able to. maybe it is time. >> douglas: they are the only country in the world that runs concentration camps. >> eboni: we still continue with this notion of doing a deal with the regime. i don't if you can do a deal with everybody, eric. that sounds hawkish or whatever but it's not worth the paper it's written on. they are not operating in good faith. >> eric: curtis, we do have covert operations, do we not? >> kat: it would have to be something like that. >> eric: no one is going to see this on television but maybe this is the time in the place
2:13 pm
for a very covert operation. >> curtis: or the alternative, take the moth balls out of the love shack in chappaqua where bill and hillary share a house and sent bill over there with al gore. they brought back our hostages there before. you play to a nut job like kim jong-un and you make him feel important. >> eric: bringing back these hostages isn't going to solve the problem of kim jong-un who tells us he's going to be able to release the western coast of the united states with a bomb. >> curtis: if you were in seoul korea, it would be great if we launched missiles into north korea. the first people who get hit are in seoul korea and he's going to turn them into speed bumps. >> eric: by no means -- i'm not trying to insinuate we blow the north koreans to smithereens. i am saying we take the teeth, set their nuclear program back ten or 20 years by whatever
2:14 pm
means necessary. >> douglas: you've got to do that at some point. there's one other thing. they may be a crazy regime, the most crazy but at some level kim jong-un wants to survive. he knows that they are riding a tiger in the moment they get off, they get eaten. >> eboni: i think you said it best. >> eric: when we come back, an explosion rocked the heart of brussels, belgium, setting europe on europe on edge yet again. we have the latest. will you be ready when the moment turns romantic? cialis for daily use treats ed and the urinary symptoms of bph. tell your doctor about your medicines, and ask if your heart is healthy enough for sex. do not take cialis if you take nitrates for chest pain, or adempas® for pulmonary hypertension, as this may cause an unsafe drop in blood pressure. do not drink alcohol in excess. to avoid long-term injury, get medical help right away for an erection lasting more than four hours. if you have a sudden decrease or loss of hearing or vision, or an allergic reaction, stop taking cialis
2:15 pm
and get medical help right away. ask your doctor about cialis.
2:16 pm
and get medical help right away.

2:17 pm
we're the rivera family, and we will be with usaa for life.
2:18 pm
>> eboni: fear gripping brussels central train station today. a male suspect was shot. the ap reports the bomb squad has successfully done a controlled explosion of the bomb belt. unclear if the suspect survived. officials say there are no civilian casualties in this situation is under control, thank god. this comes after new calls from isis for revenge strikes following sunday's london mosque attack carried out by a white british citizen. i want to ask you, many people use the phrase "divide and conquer." seems this is an effort by these
2:19 pm
terror forces to divide the civilians, muslim, anti-muslim and then be able to conquer. >> douglas: that is one of the expressed aims of vices. they want to go after what they call the gray zone of muslims who don't support them who live in europe with a think will come onto their side. it's a huge problem. i am from london. we've had three terror attacks in ten weeks. on sunday night when we had the news, the instinct was, my god. it's another islamist terror attacked but then we discover it had this awful, dark extra thing which is this the first really significant terrorist attack by white british citizen. >> eric: the one you are talking about. i am talking about general sense of upscale frequency of terror throughout the continent. can we point to the open border policy of the continent? >> douglas: yes.
2:20 pm
this is what my book is about. the fact that european leaders for more than a generation have just performed the most insane experiment. they did something, opening the borders, without any consideration of what it meant. now we are left with this incredibly difficult situation in europe. where trying to find an answer for the problem the politicians have given us. it's not easy because they have given us this problem. they don't want to admit it. one thing that's worth pointing out, this guy on sunday, everyone from the media and everyone else will be crawling over his contacts. was he part of a cell, was he involved with something that said go kill muslims? if so, we will come down on all of this like a ton of bricks. the manchester bomb or the other week who killed 22 people, it turned out the local mosque was handing out anti-western literature. nobody cared. nobody wanted to look into it.
2:21 pm
we are really good looking at it when it's a white extremist when it's doing something we are terrible at looking at the causes when it's an islamist extremist. >> kat: i talk about the way that things are worse in europe then the united states because of policy differences. that's not what we have here. i'm not saying we don't need improvement but that's not what we have in the united states now. >> douglas: i regard all of this as being a big warning for society. everything i described, everything we have gone through in europe, you are going through versions of both what you feel as a society and what you're doing in the world. i think this is a huge warning sign for the united states. don't do what we've done. >> kat: do not adopt a similar policy to europe. >> eboni: we don't want to turn into the disaster going on in europe. what lessons should we be taking? >> curtis: think back to that time before we went to war in iraq, we are going to elect tony
2:22 pm
blair president. if only bush 43 could speak like blair. blair was the author of the idea, bring them in and we will somehow convert them to western values with technology, by introducing them to women, sex, debauchery. they don't understand the mind of a young man. give a young man a gun and it is like a symbol. these imams they let go into their mosques. they get on the bully pulpit on the day of prayer and they talk about violence and killing and doing jihad in syria and libya and the middle east and north africa. the government permits this and subsidizes this. this is like suicide, and europe unfortunately is in the cycle in which they can't seem to bail themselves out. >> eric: i will take your question, what lesson. i think the lesson happened on
2:23 pm
november 8th, 2016, when we elected donald trump president because we elected someone who has an idea for a more closed border than an open, free society. is donald trump's travel ban, is it a bad idea? >> douglas: the fascinating thing is that when he proposed it, you can find anybody in polite society from where i am from who would defend it. you could barely find them here. what he suggested was a temporary ban on people from seven very unstable countries bring you know what? there was a pole afterwards that was presented that when around ten european countries and asked a much harder question, do you agree with the statement there should be zero more muslims in your country. 8 out of the ten european countries, the majority of the public said not one more muslim. the only to wear that wasn't the majority of answers was great britain. >> eric: are we as americans not listening to europeans who have change their opinions? >> douglas: we have a big
2:24 pm
problem, the things we know instinctively we need to do to keep ourselves safe and then there's the political conversation which exists. >> eboni: i want to finish with point, i appreciate exactly what he said. i think we need to be very particular when we talk about muslims. not because we are being pc or delicate but when we collectively talk about them all in a particular way, i think it empowers and embraces the islamic state. -- stay with us.

2:29 pm
blockbuster proportions. voting is underway with karen handel and jon ossoff making their last-minute pitches in the most expensive congressional race in u.s. history. some political observers are calling it a major bellwether of her president trump his agenda. >> this is the third race we've had to replace republican house members who left the house to go join the trump administration. one in kansas, republicans won. montana, republicans won. this one in south carolina republicans are going to win today. georgia is the democrats' last chance to show they can ride president trump's unpopularity into office. >> eric: can i weigh in? very smart guy but he's wrong. this isn't blockbuster. this is an bellwether. as he points out, south carolina is going to go to the republican. it's going to be a strong win. kansas went to the republican. montana went to the republican. you have three republican wins
2:30 pm
and you're going to say this one statistical tie is the one that's going to be the bellwether. >> kat: karen handel is not really a trump type populist candidate. she's an establishment candidate. i don't think it has anything to do with trump's agenda. >> eboni: even if she does win win, i don't think any of these races tell us anything about trump, his popularity, and i think it is much ado about nothing quite frankly i think everyone -- >> eric: the interesting thing that happened in georgia in this race right now, it's not going to who is going to win or lose. $50 million is being spent for a seat that's going to pay the person who occupies the seat $174,000 a year. which tells you, curtis. influence is worth a lot of money. >> curtis: wining, dining, pocket lining. that's a national sport for democrats and republicans.
2:31 pm
that's why i'm the chairman of the new york state reform party. there's got to be some campaign-finance reform. $50 million. you really think the outside monday knows who ossoff is or who handel is. they are betting on trump and anti-trump money. it's a race. the money is about trump and antitrust. take all that money. commercials, ossoff is evil. he's the antichrist, followed by handel. she is closer to lucifer. negative ads over and over. have debates, block time on tv so the local people can see the candidates debate the issues. as opposed to these 32nd and 62nd commercials filled with negativity and teach you nothing about the candidate. >> kat: people love negativity. >> douglas: they do about where i'm from, races cost so
2:32 pm
little money than what they do here. something like a 15,000-pound limit. i have to say it has advantages. candidates scramble to get a donation. there are downsides but the upside is we don't have this thing you have, money in politics and the uncertainty about where influence comes from. the waste of money. >> eboni: it is so wasteful. i hear the number $50 million on this race. no disrespect to the district but i have to say what about how much education that could buy. health care. infrastructure spending. i think of the better ways that money could be used. >> eric: an actor getting $20 million for a movie or a baseball player. >> eboni: it is a franchise
2:33 pm
tag politically speaking and it is sickening. >> eric: it points out what the value of power and influence really is. think about that. this is a two-year seat, 175 grand a year but they are spending 50 large to lock it down. >> kat: i think that will change with social media, which is of the way south trump's campaign. you don't have to buy a bunch of tv ads to get your message out. you can get your message out there with the tweet, and it does help if you have your own reality show first. karen handel -- sorry, we've got to leave it there. be sure to catch fox's continuing coverage of the georgia and south carolina special elections throughout the evening, including a special edition of "special report" at 11:00 p.m. eastern. don't miss it. straight ahead, major provocation in syria between the u.s. and russia. we will be right back.

2:38 pm
>> eric: welcome back to "the fox news specialists." our specialists are douglas murray, author of the book "the strange death of europe." and curtis sliwa. tensions escalating between russia and the u.s. today unarmed russian fighter jet erratically flew within 5 feet of a u.s. reconnaissance aircraft over the baltic sea. the provocation coming one day after russia warned that any u.s. plane flying over syrian government territory would be tracked as a military target. some are urging calm among russia's belligerents. >> the russians are not going to shoot down a u.s. fighter airplane matter what we do. they are not going to do that. >> eric: australia is not taking any chances, announcing
2:39 pm
it is suspending its part and coalition air strikes against isis and syria after the russian threat. if that weren't enough, the u.s. also just shot down an iranian drone in southern syria. all of these conflicts happening, here is the 64,000 -- the elephant in the room. if bashar al-assad is taken out and if isis is finished, that power vacuum leaves some very important territory. who gets what? >> douglas: it does. this is a central problem we have about syria. we just don't know what we want from it. the russians know really clearly what they want. they have always had an objective, to shore up their ally and do everything they can to basically make the conflict about it being between bashar al-assad and isis. it worked. your government's objective in the obama years and my government's objective during the cameron years was to effectively -- we wouldn't do
2:40 pm
their regime change. i think we have lost in syria on that regard. there is no solution you can see to ending civil war doesn't involve bashar al-assad. it's a great loss of power and influence and prestige for your country and mine. >> eric: curtis, would you agree it is time to moonwalk away from syria and that the russians and syrians work it out with isis? >> curtis: we should follow it president trump said. on this, i agree with him. we need to work with the russians. we are already working with the iranians. we are right next to him she militias that have iranian guards with them teaching them how to launch the invasion side-by-side as we are teaching the iraqi special forces. we are already working with iran. work with russia which means you work with iran to destroy the number one enemy to all of us, isis. that's the problem. who was supporting isis?
2:41 pm
saudi arabians, qatar, oman, uae. >> eric: i don't know about that. that's a leap i'm not necessarily willing to take. >> eboni: let me -- explain it to me, douglas and curtis. when you talk about working with the russians, we were forked with evil before. i get you, curtis. you talk about why people are so gung ho about getting involved in syria, it comes from the empathy, the compassion. this is a brutal dictator killing his own people, killing babies. we know there's a relationship between russia and sod. help me figure out how to reconcile the joint effort with russia on isis. i get that but then putin and assad. >> curtis: the concept of regime change has failed. iraq, failed. >> kat: why would you do it again then? >> eric: you just said we should be working with these
2:42 pm
people to destroy isis. >> kat: what we already are doing, american forces and allies are already not just taking isis territory but we are holding it from the regime. how is that not an invasion? >> curtis: the russians will not shoot down american fighter. i'm sure the russians said that that -- >> kat: nobody is listening to me whatsoever. that's okay. i already said something but i can repeat it again. american forces and allies are not -- we are taking the territory from isis but we are holding it from the regime. how was it not invasion? how would we not need to have congress vote on it and debated? how is that different from an invasion? how are we not invading syria? >> eric: i agree with you wholeheartedly in syria that it's not our conflict, not our fight. doug, then you have the people who save how can you watch bashar al-assad killed 400,000 of his own people and stand by
2:43 pm
and do nothing? >> douglas: let's be frank. we have simply for that. who wants to see this civil war go on? for the same people who say something must be done today will be the first people to call out when an american plane hits the wrong house in the family dies. they will be the first people to withdraw their support. they urge it on until conflict actually happens. i think we have to have a very different view of this. the limited capability we have in the limited objective in syria, take out isis. that is a legitimate name. your country and my country no longer clearly have the desire, well, or energy to remain this occupying force. we don't want to do it. we don't want to own it. russia does. they wanted more than us. >> eric: are we fighting isis or are we fighting bashar al-assad in syria? >> eboni: they are fighting each other. maybe it's heartbreaking and devastating what assad is doing to his people and we want to be
2:44 pm
the worlds police an end the world humanitarian, perhaps that must be outweighed by the necessary desire to defeat the islamic state in the joint coalition. >> eric: let me ask a kat. are we okay? libertarian, pseudo-conservative libertarian, are we okay to say let's back out and let russia deal with it? and then deal with the consequences of a refugee crisis and humanitarian crisis? >> kat: we are getting to the point where it's an invasion and we need to have that be debated in congress and have the conversation. >> eric: you don't necessarily have a problem with attacking or fighting in syria. he wanted to go through congress. >> kat: we should debated and talk about it the way the constitution says we are supposed to. it's too big of a deal. you talk about russia threatening us, you see how big of a deal these things are. there's a reason why it's not supposed to be one guy and his advisors making these decisions. >> eric: i will tell you who doesn't like the idea of a
2:45 pm
refugee crisis in syria. the continent of europe. >> douglas: that is only one component of our crisis. people are coming from sub-saharan africa, north africa, middle east. camps. >> curtis: that is why you have a no-fly zone with the russians and americans cooperating so refugees can stay in syria so when the civil war is over they are not coming here. they are not going to europe. they are staying in syria. >> eric: i'm not the guy who says let's take out assad. up next, seven republicans racing to bring their own obamacare repeal and replace law to a vote before the fourth of july recess but democrats are deploying every trick in the book they can find his topic. stay tuned.
2:46 pm
2:47 pm

2:49 pm
>> eboni: senate republicans kicking it into high gear as they try to repeal and replace obamacare. mitch mcconnell announcing a vote will likely come next week with plans to release the discussion draft of the bill on
2:50 pm
thursday. the push is triggering fierce resistance from democrats with one democratic senator now in pretty hot water after invoking last week's shooting that targeted g.o.p. lawmakers. because there's been a lot of coverage of the russian investigation, obviously focused last week on the devastating shooting in washington. republicans have used that news as cover to try to move a belt of the senate floor that's deeply unpopular. >> eboni: the knee-jerk reaction to go into our respective corners. forget about this man he's talking about, steve scalise still in the hospital. i find that repulsive. that aside, this bill is not very popular bear looks like most people would like to know more about it, seymour debate. do you think it's important to get it done fast or should the g.o.p. take a step back and see with the people want?
2:51 pm
>> douglas: i am mystified by the health care debates in this country. the one thing i do know is that this politicization of absolutely everything that's going on in your country and my own is really disheartening to the general public. we really are seeing people making accusations like that. just to be some decency in the debate. can there be some recognition of what happens. the politicization of everything. it's one of the status developments -- status developments of our time. >> eboni: since the shooting everyone has called for civil discourse, to call on our better humanity but we don't seem to be getting closer. >> curtis: all i want to do was know what's in the bill. remember obamacare, nancy pelos nancy pelosi. speaker ryan, don't worry. now it is hush-hush. we don't know what the republican senate majority bill
